BigFish Consulting was founded by Chris Coughlan in 2008. After 20 years of high level business development experience and sales training, Chris envisioned a client centric business designed to partner with companies looking for revenue growth and evolving business development strategies.

Fast forward to current day, Chris is the revenue accelerator of choice. He has developed and defined a new version of the concept called the “Collaborative Economy”. Chris uses this concept to help educate business owners, executives and sales teams on how to achieve strategic revenue objectives in today’s accelerative and collaborative business environment.

Bigfish Consulting partners with “collab’preneurs” and small businesses to develop and execute new revenue growth strategies. This unique method of using our clients’ real prospects as training tools is not only a differentiator to other coaching companies, but it creates a custom, repeatable deliverable for the client to use on their own post coaching engagement. Additionally, our trademarked “Shortest Distance to Revenue” strategy is executed along side to provide proven, repeatable success. Bigfish Consulting integrates within each of our client’s businesses as a team member to produce results, achieve success in turn creating – more wins, more often.

Chris isn’t just business, he’s about fun too! Chris and his wife of 30+ years, Stacey, are always on the go! They are avid about getting outside in nature to enjoy outdoor activities that include skiing, golfing, and shooting sports. They also spend as much time as they can playing outdoors with their family labradors, aka the kids! Chris and BigFish Consulting are proud longtime stewards of the environment. They are committed to making a positive impact within the local community, they donate significant amounts of time and resources to the creation of safe places where youth and families can be happy and healthy together.

BigFish Consulting is a wealth of information when it comes to messaging and approaching sales strategies. They have been instrumental to us on multiple new client acquisitions. They helped us develop our oral presentation strategy so that it was direct and succinct leaving the buyer wanting more.
